New Video for Eric Clapton, Doyle Bramhall II Track

“Recording this song and making this video was an adventure, for sure. I started writing this song in the northeast corner of Poland on a European tour last year and recorded it in Brooklyn, NY a few months later. When I first heard it back after recording it, I immediately thought it would be something Eric would dig and asked him if he would be interested in playing on it. He said if I could come to him he could do it. So I got on the first flight and we recorded his part. I then took it home to finish. When it was ready, I asked Abe Rounds and Chris Bruce from Meshell Ndegeocello’s band to be the band for the video and then called legendary Drummer James Gadson (from Bill Withers, Charles Wright, Dyke and the Blazers and more) to make a cameo appearance since he had been in the last video. He was cool enough to indulge me. It was definitely a fun ride making this song and video.” – Doyle Bramhall II

The Brother Brothers Premiere “Red and Gold” at Popmatters

Brooklyn-based Americana duo The Brother Brothers have released the third single from their forthcoming debut album, Some People I Know, out October 19 on Compass Records. Popmatters premiered “Red and Gold” today, saying “Gentle in pace and performance, the Mosses have ample space to glide through beautiful, harmonic melodies, as they do. All-in-all it does what they do best, presenting the musical power in weaving their stories and songs with subtlety. It captures their project’s specific type of energy—the type that doesn’t necessarily maintain the sort-of glam or acrobatics as many modern Americana acts claim, nor the type that needs to.”


“ ‘A Million Stars’ isn’t only about appreciating the person you’re with or the location you’re in, it’s about being free of the world’s distractions and valuing the little details that make a memory unique. I believe we’re defined by our reactions to these moments,” says Josh. “This video represents the double-edged sword of sharing perfect memories, but being thrust into a situation where cherishing them might not ever be possible. It’s a reality anyone faces when you’re away from loved ones, friends or even a familiar place.”
